On Tuesday, March 6, we ask for you to vote YES on Article 37 in support of The Basement Teen Center.
The Basement Teen Center is funded in part by a $15,000 appropriation from the City of Montpelier. This money is used to support programming and staff salary. We are grateful to our neighbors here in Montpelier for their continued support over the past 22 years.
With this essential support from the Montpelier voters each year the Basement Teen Center:
– Serves over 250 teens
-Has close to 3000 visits from those teens
-Provides over 2100 free meals and snacks
The BTC offers programming developed to give youth a voice in their community and create opportunities for healthy expression. We hold workshops with local professionals to mentor teens on filmmaking, photography, music and art. Most importantly we provide a safe, substance free space for young people to participate in activities that encourage positive growth.
The Basement Teen Center is an indispensable resource for our community and our youth.
Thank you so much for your support!
